Lebanon Saint-Joseph University
Project: E-flora of Lebanon
Project coordinator: Professor Magda Bou Dagher Kharrat
Establish a specialized computing infrastructure (hardware, software) to (1) mobilize and enable researchers (including people working from abroad) to validate as well as directly contribute data (such as text, photos, meteorological and geographical information, etc.) to an online database of the region’s flora, that will ultimately present a holistic approach of changes in the ecosystem and (2) open the database to students for their contributions and use, along with e-learning resources on Lebanese flora (documents, but also human resources within the virtual community), development and integration of existing e-learning resources and delivery of e-learning certificates.
